Pharmacology, as we know, is one of the most difficult subjects that you are ever going to deal with as a medical student. Memorizing (or “cramming” should I say 😀 ) classification of drugs would numb your mind and you will forget everything right after a few hours after each study session. And this isn’t it! 😀 You have to deal with drugs mechanism of action, indications, contraindications and adverse effects (tons of them) which are so similar that it becomes hard to remember specific ones. Tough and boring I know, but nevertheless, Pharmacology is a very important subject. You will only be able to prescribe a drug if you have a clear understanding regarding all of its clinical background or else you might end up risking your patient’s life.
